InstaCollage is a mobile app designed to create themed photo collages, complete with a variety of borders, frames, and effects. InstaCollage is a great tool for enhancing the presentation value of a collection of images, and users can even make greeting cards and personal post cards to share with their family and friends. Users simply select images from their photo library to include in their collage. Then they choose filters for the images, and organize them into one of the available collage templates. InstaCollage projects, as the name would imply, can be posted to Instagram when complete. The app is easy to use, and is recommended for children ages 6 and older.

This app is good for kids who need help with:


Adapting and adjusting to changing conditions and expectations.

InstaCollage encourages your child to look at an assortment of photographs and consider thematic similarities. It is from these similarities that an idea for a collage should emerge. Your child must manipulate the chosen collection of photographs using filters, effects, and framing, to convey his desired message. InstaCollage helps to surface your child's creativity. With so many options for editing, sizing, and combining images, your child may have to experiment with different strategies before arriving at the final product. Encourage your child to explore the app, using a variety of tools and setting before committing to one particular collage. Using flexible thinking, your child should re-strategize to achieve the look he wants.


Arranging and coordinating materials in order to complete a task.

Organization is important when creating a collage. Beyond creating folders or maintaining a storing system for saved images, InstaCollage requires your child to carefully arrange pictures within the framework of the generated collage. In a collage, photos and images can be positioned by theme, color, and size. It is important for your child to understand how similarities among images can influence where they will be placed, or organized on the screen. Your child must also determine what type of collage best suits the chosen images.


Managing our actions, feelings and behaviors.

Children often find that taking photographs is a way of expressing themselves. A collage can further the expressive element of picture taking by combing effects and images, and enhancing the sensibilities inherent in each image. Because photographs impart emotional responses, your child can use InstaCollage to convey moods or feelings, or express an idea or notion in a creative way.
